Vladimir Putin meets volunteers
25,000 volunteers will be helping guests and participants at the Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014. Volunteers will be trained at special centres at large universities. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has promised state assistance to volunteers. At a meeting with young volunteers, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin pointed out that the state should support noble impulses and there should be certain incentives for the development of the volunteer movement. He promised that the government will consider the issues of the reimbursement of travel fares and medical insurance. But Vladimir Putin stressed that volunteers first of all should be guided by their hearts. Vladimir Putin wished the volunteers success in everything they do, both in assisting the work of important sport, public and political events and in helping those who just need human support, which is just as important.
